Building Construction


In the Building Construction module, students construct a scale model of a storage shed, starting with framing a side wall and progressing through framing and sheathing the back wall, window wall, and door wall. The students then assemble the walls and install trusses, soffits, fascias, and roof decking. Along the way, students learn useful and valuable information about the tools of the trade, hazards and safety precautions, building materials, lumber grades, construction drawings, material estimates, roof and truss types, and the different careers related to building construction.
